After Promising More, De Blasio Explains Limited Voting Reform Push

Mayor Bill deBlasio announced an ambitious voting reform effort earlier this year. What happened to it?

Ben Max takes a look in the Gotham Gazette: “(w)ell, I thought it was the beginning of a major effort, and we found quickly, you saw the session was pretty unusual,” de Blasio said during an open question-and-answer session after discussing July 4th-related public safety matters at One Police Plaza. “It was not like any session I can remember. The leaders — you remember the day the leaders met for the first time, it was astoundingly late in the session. And for a long time, including as recently as Wednesday morning, we thought that very skinny bill that the governor put forward was all that was gonna get through,” de Blasio said.”
